ACC trustees debating bond for November election

Thursday, August 11, 2022 by Tai Moses

A coalition of community and business leaders is urging the Austin Community College Board of Trustees to place a bond proposition on the November ballot “to expand education and workforce training throughout our region,” according to a press release from the political action committee ACC Works for All. The PAC says a bond package of between $500 million and $815 million “will fund elements of the college’s Facilities Master Plan and focus on increasing the college’s capacity to provide hands-on training for in-demand jobs. The ACC bond could fund improvements at each of the college’s 11 campuses and includes the development of a new regional workforce training campus in Southeast Travis County.” ACC trustees will deliberate on whether to approve the bond proposition at the board retreat today, Aug. 11.
